Prep­ping the paint

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight Painting With Gouache -

It’s im­por­tant to prep your paint be­fore each ses­sion and make sure that it’s not too dry. I would rec­om­mend adding the ap­pro­pri­ate amount of paint de­pend­ing on the depth of the box com­part­ments. Use about one-quar­ter of the tube to start out, and add more as you see fit. Spray the de­sired amount of wa­ter with the small spray bot­tle – I aim for a pan­cake-mix type con­sis­tency. Then mix the wa­ter and paint evenly with a tooth­pick. De­pend­ing on the weather, I might also make the paint a bit more wa­tery on a very hot day, or add more fresh pig­ments for thicker paint when paint­ing in­doors.
